По приглашению Директора "Центра Маркетинга" Владимира Моторжина с 5-го по 12 декабря в Рязани находилась делегация ученых из Уневерситета Буффало США. В Рязани представители Университета планировали встретиться с предпринимателями, а также со студентами местного филиала Московского политехнического университета.
Однако всё пошло не так как планировалось! Американцам, из-за встречи со студентами, вменили преподавательскую деятельность, хотя визы у них туристические, приговорили к штрафу и депортации, а также на 5 лет запретили посещать Россию.
В пресс-службе Советского районного суда Рязани сообщили, что дела об административном нарушении были возбуждены против пяти граждан США, работающих в университете города Буффало. «Поводом к возбуждению дел об административном правонарушении послужило проведение ими 6 декабря 2019 года на территории Рязанского института (филиала) Московского Политехнического университета лекционного мероприятия со студентами и преподавателями вузов Рязани. Указанная деятельность не соответствовала заявленной цели въезда в Российскую Федерацию», — сообщили в суде.
На самом деле никакой лекции не было. Каждому члену делегации выделили по 15 минут, а если учесть, что все шло через переводчиков, то на сами так называемые «лекции» в итоге было отведено минут пять. За это время американцы только и успели рассказать, кто они, откуда и чем занимаются, ну немного еще о своем университете. Потом еще минут 40 гости из США отвечали на вопросы. Ну что могут спросить студенты? Можно ли приехать к ним в университет по обмену, как наладить связь между вузами. Вот и все «лекции» за которые Американцев признали виновными, оштрафовали и выдворили из страны!
